The event offers cinema-goers the chance to be ‘part of a truly unmissable experience’ – but we can’t tell you exactly what that involves because screening details are shrouded in mystery.
Previous Secret Cinema screenings have included Lindsay Anderson’s classic 1968 film ‘If’ at Dulwich College and a preview of the rock-umentary ‘Anvil! The Story of Anvil’ at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Tonight’s film is billed as one of the most remarkable unseen films of the year, and there’s likely to be music involved – audience members have been asked to bring one secret record or mix tape to give to a stranger.
As it’s the 4th July, there’s also likely to be a strong nod to The States. Gourmet hot dogs are available for anyone who’s hungry, and those who hail from the US or South Africa (which may be another clue) will receive a discount on ticket prices provided they bring a flag and proof of nationality.
Last-minute tickets can be booked online (£15/20 plus booking fee) or purchased at the event, but make sure you get there early – doors open at 7pm and this one looks like it’s going to be popular.
